Rabies

  1. 1. Agent factors • Lyssavirus type 1 RNA virus • Source of infection is through the saliva of a rabid animal Host factors • All warm blooded animals re susceptibl e to the virus
  2. 2. Rabies in man is called HydroPhobia The disease begins with Headache,malaise,sore throat and slight fever. 80% cases complain with tingling at the site of bite This stage is referred as Prodromal stage
  3. 3. The prodromal stage is then followed by a widespread excitation stage and stimulation of nervous system ( first the sensory system,motor system,sympathetic system and mental system The patient gets intolerant to noise,bright light,cold draught of air Aerophobia is present:pathognomic feature
  4. 4. Fanning of air across the face produces violent spasm of pharyngeal and neck muscles. Increased reflexes present Dilated pupil present Increased perspiration, salivation and lacrimation present Mental changes include fear of death,anger,irritability and depression
  5. 5. On the basis of history of bite by a rabid animal Based on signs and symptoms Antigen detection using Immunoflouroscence of skin biopsy Virus isolation from Saliva
  6. 6. Isolate the patient in a quiet room Keep him away from external stimuli such as bright light, noise,air etc Relieve anxiety and pain by giving sedatives Ensure hydration and diuresis Respiratory support and cardiac support may be given
  7. 7. Post exposure prophylaxis Pre exposure prophylaxis Post exposure treatment of persons who have been vaccinated previously
  8. 8. The main aim is to neutralize the virus before it reached to nervous system Local treatment of wound Cleansing: Immediate flusing with plenty of soap and water for atleast 15 minutes Chemical treatment After cleansing irrigate the wound with virucidal agent like alcohol ,tincture iodine or povidone Antibiotics and anti tetanus measure
  9. 9. Neural vaccine Semple vaccine Beta propionilactone vaccine Suckling mouse brain vaccine Non neural vaccine Embryonated egg based vaccine Purified cell culture vaccine • I generation • II generation
